Organogenesis Receives FDA Clearance for Next Generation PuraPly Surgical Solution
PuraPly MZ is an Innovative Product for Complex Surgical Wounds
CANTON, Mass., Aug. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Organogenesis, a leading regenerative medicine company, today announced it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510k Clearance for PuraPly MZ, a brand extension to the PuraPly product portfolio. PuraPly MZ leverages the innovative properties of our PuraPly technology engineered into a micronized (powdered) form to provide surgeons with an option for complex surgical wounds.
“Securing FDA Clearance for PuraPly MZ is a significant milestone for the company as we continue to expand into the surgical and sports medicine market,” said Gary S. Gillheeney, Sr., President and chief executive officer of Organogenesis. “We are very pleased to provide surgeons addressing complex surgical wounds with access to this extension of our widely used PuraPly technology. This new solution demonstrates Organogenesis’s commitment to delivering innovative advanced technologies that improve surgical outcomes and patient experience.”
Of the 40 to 50 million surgeries in the United States each year, up to 28% of surgical sites must be left open to heal. To support clinicians and patients with these complex post-surgical wounds, Organogenesis developed PuraPly MZ, a powder that is designed to support wound healing in deep, tunneling, and complex wounds. PuraPly MZ consists of native structured collagen that is designed to allow for maximum coverage and maintenance of optimal contact with the contours of the wound surface to support healing.
